The Duke of Sussex, 36, suggested he would have a maximum of two children to help protect the planet. He joined chimpanzee expert Dr Jane Goodall in an interview for Vogue, telling her: “I think, weirdly, because of the people that I’ve met and the places that I’ve been fortunate enough to go to, I’ve always had a connection and a love for nature.
“I view it differently now, without question.
“I’ve always wanted to try and ensure that, even before having a child and hoping to have children…”
Dr Goodall interrupted to suggest they would not have “too many” children, to which Harry replied: “Two, maximum!
“But I’ve always thought: this place is borrowed. And, surely, being as intelligent as we all are, or as evolved as we all are supposed to be, we should be able to leave something better behind for the next generation.”
The Sussexes shared the news alongside an image of themselves resting beneath a tree in a loving gaze.
